Discovery rules apply in asbestos exposure cases where the injury or disease is latent, therefore a cause of actions accrues when "the existence of the injury is not known to the complaining party and such knowledge cannot reasonably be ascertained within the prescribed statutory period, the limitations period does not begin to run until the discovery of the injury is reasonably possible." McCauley v. Owens-Corning Fiberglas Corp., 715 A.2d 1125, 1127 (Pa. Super. 1998).
